Tutu Construction Tips, Please?!?

My teen daughters and I are about to attempt to make our first ballet costume. We expect this first one to become a practice tutu. We are intending to make a black pancake tutu and separate (removable) bodice.

After many Google searches and book browsings we believe we are ready, but I would appreciate any tips you all could give me. Any tips on construction or resources on information and supplies would be greatly appreciated.

On Thu Sep 22, 2016 01:21 PM is a fabulous resource! They have all the supplies you would need and more. I had planned to take one of their in person courses this summer but life got in the way. Hoping to next summer.

I've made plenty of bodices but have yet to tackle a pancake tutu.
